Synopsis: Sam and Seb Buckley live on a farm with their mother and father. Everyone in town knows them as the Buckley Brothers. But they are more than just brothers, despite the fact that one is black and the other is white, the boys have always insisted that they were twins. When they were young, their mother felt there was no harm in just letting it go; but now that they’re grown men, she’s not so sure.

This film is about identity; do we choose who we are or do we let other people do it for us? And do we really have a choice?

Best Comedy (The Buckley Brothers)
"This was both heartwarming and funny to watch. The actors act like they really show a close personal bond with each other, and it almost seemed like a real family taking part in a real documentary. The entire setup was put well together, and the farm scenery was authentic and interesting." - Nick Wangersky, Hollywood North Magazine
